If you’re a Japanese car enthusiast, there is one thing you know you’ve always dreamed of doing once in Japan; and that is to visit as many tuner shops and stores as possible.  I’m no different.  I’ve wanted to visit an Up Garage for some time now, and a few months ago I finally got my chance.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve had an affliction towards used parts.  Maybe it’s the history that comes along with them; or maybe it’s because I’m fiscally responsible (read: cheap).  There’s no better place to go bargain hunting for JDM car part goodness than at an Up Garage.

Encounter: Nismo WC34

On our way to Hard-Off, a used goods store, I spotted this guy coming out of the parking lot.  This is a Nismo edition Nissan Stagea; or as it’s know, the Skyline Wagon.  It rocks a RB engine and came in 2wd or 4wd variants.  I’m not 100%, but I think this is a series 2.  The owner seemed to keep it real clean, just look at those wheels!
